STRUCTURE & competition Format

Structure and Format. During the season, the NTL will host a Cup Series, which is a competition structure that involves 10 teams, with two horses and their jockeys per team. The Cup Series follows a league table format, with points accumulated throughout the season. Teams compete in a series of races, each contributing to their overall standing in the league.
The NTL Championship was founded in 2023 and its independent governing body sets the rules and regulations for the league. The championship consists of races held at throughout the year across the country, showcasing the best thoroughbreds and jockeys in the world. Points are awarded based on the finishing position of each horse in a race. The team with the highest total points at the end of the season is crowned the NTL Champion.
